Ok, this isn’t based on fact or rumor. This is pure speculation based on a thought I had last night about something I believe would be useful and marketable.
Here’s the idea. Google partners with RIM or PalmOne to create a co-branded Google-Communicator, based on the BlackBerry or the Treo. You hit the Web button, and it takes you to an optimized Google search page. Hit the Email button and it takes you into your Gmail account. Tie this together with aGPS, and Google Local and you’re just a few chicklet clicks away from finding the nearest Pizza joint.
We know that Google is looking at this market space because of Google SMS. The questions is how far are they going to take it?
